I was always too much woman for you
I would slip between your fingers
Like grains of sand
I was always too much woman for you
I would float out of your reach
Like a balloon to a child
I was always too much woman for you
I would run you down
Like a bull in a ring
I was always too much woman for you
Like a tidal wave
I swept you away
I tried to be less of a woman for you
And that was the day I lost myself
JP 18h
Don't tell me you love me
Unless you're willing
To weather the seasons
To dance in the rain
Without an umbrella
And lay in the grass
While the sun shines
And pick flowers
From every garden you find
And hike through the snow
Til you find yourself
Nestled in my heart
Where I will always keep you warm
Don't tell me you love me
Unless you're willing
To weather the seasons

Your insecurities
Manifest in your bad habits
Like ******* and fountain pop
And sleeping with men
Who won't remember your name
Even if it meant losing a friend
But I still hope you don't choke
On all that cigarette smoke
JP 5d
I drank the last drop
From my wine glass
Then watched it fill with tears
Of memories passed

I took a lighter to those tears
And watched them burn
Like the bridges I've made
And the lessons I've learned

Then I cleaned up the mess
Took a shower, dried off
Put on my favourite dress
Some mascara and lip gloss

Without a care in the world
I danced the night away
Cause the best lesson, I remind myself
Is tomorrow is a brand new day

She was beautifully broken
But beautiful none the less
She had stars in her eyes
To shine through the mess
And spoke in song
To help her along
She dreamed of far off places
And love to fill the empty spaces
She was not made for this world
So tucked away she stayed curled
And soon the spaces turned to walls
And the far off places became places she could fall
Until a boy with a golden mane
Helped her move passed all the pain
He planted flowers in the walls
And they grew and bloomed, beautiful and tall
The walls came crashing down
And with it, she was once again found
Her dreams turned to hopes
And gratitude became the language she spoke
She planted her own garden
With all the pieces of her that were broken
And it grew and grew, wild and free
Simple, strong and beautifully
JP 7d
I'd rather suffer in
       S
          I
            L

                  N
S   O   L   I   T   U   D   E       
Than expose my soul
And have you tell me
It will be alright
As you hold
The pillow over my face
And wish me goodnight
JP 7d
Cut my skin
I'll sew it up again
With the thorns
From the roses you gave me
When you said I was yours

Break my heart
Tear it apart
And I'll stitch it back together
With broken glass
Like the broken promises
You left me with forever
